As part of its 30th anniversary this year, Bend, Oregon’s Deschutes Brewery reached out to past brewers to collaborate on seven new beers. I’m highlighting each of these beers in a blog post each day leading up to the brewery’s anniversary on June 27.

Wolfgang’s Vintage Vienna Lager

Description: 30th Anniversary Collaboration with Boneyard Brewery (draught only). This hoppy Vienna Lager has been named after Wolfgang, the legendary dog of Tony Lawrence, owner of Boneyard Brewery, who was often found relaxing on the brewdeck while Lawrence brewed during his days at Deschutes. Lawrence spent the day with Deschutes’ Assistant Brewmaster, Robin Johnson, at the Bend pub brewing this delightful hoppy Vienna Lager.

Beer Geek Information: 6% ABV | 25 IBUs
When: June release
Where: Available draught only in Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Northern California and
Virginia.

Indeed, Tony Lawrence, the man behind such Boneyard beers as RPM IPA, Hop Venom Double IPA, Suge Knite Imperial Stout, Notorious Triple IPA, and so on, opted to brew a Vienna Lager for an anniversary beer. This will be a beer to seek out for sure.

Brewer Quotes

Tony Lawrence, Boneyard Brewery

“Getting the invitation to take part in the 30-year anniversary collaboration project is a great honor. The
all-star list of brewers is amazing. All of my brewing mentors and buddy’s back after all these years is
simply CRAZY! GOOD TIMES and where I grew up brewing. Thank you, Deschutes, for giving me a
chance.”

All of these anniversary collaboration beers will be on tap at the Brewery’s Party in the Park on Saturday, July 30.

June 22 is National Radler Day so you know what you have to do—blend up a lighter beer with lemonade or citrus soda and enjoy the warm first weekend of summer! It’ll be a great accompaniment to the Oregon beer news for this weekend. You’ll find the weekend’s news and events roundup below, and as usual I will be updating this post throughout the day with additional items as I find them for the weekend. Pour up that radler and let’s go.

Friday, 6/22

McMenamins has a new, rare, specialty beer from the Edgefield brewery that’s quite unlike anything the company has done before: Arata Kriek, billed as a cherry lambic. Less that 200 bottles were produced, and on Friday at 6pm, the 23rd Avenue Bottle Shop in Portland is hosting the release party for the beer. Brewpublic has the description of it: “Arata Kriek is deep red, pleasantly sour and packed with cherry flavor from aging on hundreds of pounds of Fuji Cherries. This rare barrel-aged offering was brewed and fermented with wild yeast and mixed cultures in the summer of 2015 and has been aging in Hogshead Whiskey barrels from the Edgefield Distillery for two-and-a-half years, one spent entirely on fruit. Arata Kriek finished at 5.03% ABV.”

The 23rd Avenue Bottle Shop is also releasing cans of Sunflower IPA at the same time. Overall should be a good evening at the Shop for new beers!

Oregon Cider Week rolls into its first weekend, with the following events happening on Friday:

And while it’s not listed on the Cider Week page, The Bier Stein in Eugene is hosting Corvallis’ 2 Towns Ciderhouse for the release party for La Mûre, 2 Towns’ lambic-style cider: “Join us from 5-8pm on June 22nd to celebrate the release of LA MÛRE! Try your luck at the reverse raffle to win 2Towns swag! LA MÛRE is a lambic style cider brewed with Oregon grown Marion blackberries, sourced with lactobacillus and aged in Willamette Valley pinto noir barrels. Inspired by the historic lambic beers of Belgium, La Mûre embodies the Flemish styles of old. Northwest apples and Oregon grown Marion blackberries are fermented wild with Lactobacillus. Aged in Willamette Valley pinot noir barrels for one year, this unique cider is then removed from these dusty casks and bottle conditioned, revealing complex aromatics and a lactic tang that only time can unfold.”

Belmont Station (Portland) is hosting an evening with Revision Brewing from 5 to 8pm: “Here’s your chance to meet a few of the fine folks that keep the beers at Revision Brewing flowing: Jeremy Warren (CEO/Brewmaster) and Darla Roberts (VP, Sales & Marketing)! Whole Lotta Ruckus, described as a “Northeast-Style Double IPA, combining the best of Northeastern tropical juiciness and West Coast piney aggressiveness,” will be on tap, along with State of Haze, a hazy IPA! And of course, there’s Revision offerings in the bottle shop to take home.”

Saturday, 6/23

Crux Fermentation Project (Bend) is celebrating its sixth anniversary with Cruxapalooza 7 this Saturday! “Cruxapalooza is coming! We’re not going to let a little construction project prevent us from celebrating our anniversary and the community that supports us. So, we hope you’ll come down and join us for a day full of craft beer, food, and live music. Ural Thomas & the Pain is headlining our little hootenanny. Lance Canales & The Flood will be playing for us again and Bend’s own The Beautiful Train Wrecks and Soul’d Out will join Portland’s Mission Spotlight to round out the day’s line-up. Did we mention that there will be 30+ beers on tap plus some fun stuff for the kiddos?” Don’t miss out!

Bend’s Boneyard Beer is hosting a Taproom Appreciation Party on Saturday from 11 to 5pm: “Join us June 23rd from 11AM – 5PM as we gear up to say “farewell” to our taproom and prep for the opening of the Boneyard Pub. We will have a HUGE blowout garage sale, killer draft list inside the taproom, fantastic food from F Bomb Burritos & pints in the parking lot. The Boneyard taproom at 37 NW Lake Place will remain open until the Boneyard Pub at 1955 NE Division Street opens (TBD). Thanks to everyone that has supported us over the years! Come be a part of history!” That’s right, the Pub is getting close to opening!

Wolves & People Farmhouse Brewery (Newberg) celebrates its second anniversary on Saturday with Felicitation 2018 bottle release: “Two years in, Wolves & People Farmhouse Brewery will host their annual “Felicitation” birthday bottle release featuring their own beers and other acclaimed ales from around the U.S. on Saturday, June, 23rd. The celebration will toast the brewery’s big second year, which included new highly-rated beers, a system expansion, national accolades, and sales into several U.S. states (Washington and New York). This year’s version of “Felicitation” is an 100% oak-fermented and barrel-aged, Brett-kissed saison with a blend of local jostaberries and raspberries (500ml). Available in limited quantities, advance tickets are available to the bottle release day and to reserve one bottle of Felicitation in advance.”

Saturday’s Oregon Cider Week events include:

Block 15 Brewery (Corvallis): Saturday at the taproom is Block 15’s Red, White & BOOM! Release, featuring the new IPA in cans: “Join us at Block 15 Brewery & Tap Room on Saturday, June 23, for the release of Red, White & BOOM! IPA in 16oz cans—available to purchase when the Tap Room doors open at 11:30am. Born in the land of the free and the home of the IPA, this independently-brewed ale was crafted with 100% American ingredients. American grown malted barley blends with crisp American Ale yeast to pave the way for an explosion of pine, mango, and zesty orange peel notes bursting from a bountiful addition of Northwest-grown hops. This hopped-up ode to our U.S. of A. is perfect for celebrating your independence this summer. 7% ABV. Price $3.75 per can, plus deposit. Limit 24 cans”

Sunday, 6/24

Oregon Cider Week continues, with the following:

As part of its 30th anniversary this year, Bend, Oregon’s Deschutes Brewery reached out to past brewers to collaborate on seven new beers. I’m highlighting each of these beers in a blog post each day leading up to the brewery’s anniversary on June 27.

Fresh Chair Northwest Pale Ale

Description: 30th Anniversary Collaboration with Crux Fermentation Project (draught only). The first debut of the 30th collaborations includes former brewmasters, Larry Sidor and Cam O’Connor of Crux Fermentation Project, in the creation of a perfect blend of award winning Fresh Squeezed IPA and Red Chair Northwest Pale Ale. Encompassing the popular hop varieties Citra, Mosaic and Centennial, a bright and bold hop aroma compliments a drinkable malt body. All proceeds from this beer will benefit restoration of streamflow and improved water quality in the Deschutes River Basin through the Deschutes River Conservancy.

Beer Geek Information: 6.5% ABV | 35 IBUs
When: March – June
Where: Available draught only in Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Northern California and Virginia.

Larry Sidor was responsible for the creation of Red Chair Northwest Pale Ale (originally it was Red Chair IPA), while Cam O’Connor created Fresh Squeezed IPA during his time working at the Portland Pub.

Brewer Quotes

Larry Sidor, Crux Fermentation Project:

“Great experience to be back home again. Who says you can’t. John Denver sang it a lot better than I can say it:

Yes, ‘n, hey it’s good to be back home again, yes, it is
Sometimes this old farm feels like a long-lost friend
Yes, ‘n, hey it’s good to be back home again

Great folks, great innovation, great Ingredients, great equipment equals great beer! Thanks Deschutes for great trip back home!”

Cam O’Connor, Crux Fermentation Project:

“It meant a lot to me [to be invited back.] I spent over half of my brewing career working for Deschutes. It was kind of surreal being back in the building making beer. Working on this project with a whole bunch of great people who I worked with for a long time was very exciting. And in the end, the beer turned out great!!!”

All of these anniversary collaboration beers will be on tap at the Brewery’s Party in the Park on Saturday, July 30.

The Brew Site by Jon Abernathy - 1d ago

Happy Solstice! Today is the first day of summer which of course now means you can only drink Summer Ale until September. (Or, you know, not!) Here’s the Oregon beer news for this June 21, which I will be updating throughout the day, so keep checking back for the latest news and happenings.

Oregon Cider Week begins today! This seventh annual event celebrating all things (Oregon) cider runs from today, June 21, through Sunday, July 1, and the list of events for each day can be found here (filter by individual day). I will also list each day’s events on the news roundups, and you can find today’s events kicking off the week below.

Belmont Station (Portland) is hosting Melvin Brewing for an IPA release and fundraiser tonight from 5 to 8pm: “Melvin’s latest addition to their core lineup is ‘Crafted on Wyoming’s West Coast … with 100-percent lupulin cryopowder, we hit the cross-fader between old-school brewing skills and new-school hop technology, creating this tasty remix guaranteed to keep your head ringing.’ Sure, it will be delicious. But it also will be life-changing. Maybe not for you, but for people benefiting from the great works of RIP Medical Debt. RIP is working to raise enough in donations by the end of 2018 to purchase and abolish $50 million in unpayable veteran and military personnel medical debt in America. Because of their buying power, $100 in donations can forive $10,000 in debt. And all the money raised through Your IPA sales in Oregon stays in Oregon! So come taste this futuristic approach to homegrown beer. And help get some Oregonians back on their feet financially!”

McMenamins Kennedy School (Portland) has its monthly limited-edition beer tasting today at 5pm, featuring the opportunity to meet the brewers (Brian Riley and Ryan Lund) and check out the School’s Concordia Brewery. The beer that will be sampling tonight isn’t listed (which is a shame, the site used to list the beers for all of the tasting events but hasn’t lately) but don’t let that deter you.

Here are the Oregon Cider Week events for today:

A number of Central Oregon breweries are participating in the American Red Cross Battle of the Breweries 2018, which is an ongoing blood drive that runs from June 18 through June 29 (next Friday). It’s a good cause and worth checking out: “Every two SECONDS, someone in the U.S. needs the life saving gift of blood. There is currently a shortage of ALL blood types. In order to bring awareness to this URGENT need, local breweries have partnered with the American Red Cross for a friendly little competition! The cool thing is, you can save a life just by participating! Here’s how it works; Give a pint, vote for your favorite brewery and get a coupon for a pint/taster on your next tasting room/pub visit. (21+, of course) It’s that easy! Donation times are super flexible, in most cases it takes less than an hour. Download the American Red Cross Blood Donor App and schedule an appointment, call 1-800-733-2767 or just walk-in. You won’t be sorry you took the time to save a life!”

The Upper Lip at Bailey’s Taproom (Portland) is hosting An Evening with Shelton Brothers Oregon today starting at 5pm: “Come join us to experience some of our absolutely favorite beers in our catalog and chat with one of the actual Shelton Brothers! Brother Dan will be in attendance to answer any questions you may have and to help us present the best we have to offer. The beers being poured tonight will be a representation of the pinnacle of what we are fortunate enough to work with. These will be a combination of our most legacy offerings and our deepest cuts. Many of these beers are ones that have fueled the fire for the beer scene we enjoy today! Some will be historical, some will be rare, all will be delicious!!”

Today is the last day of spring, so toast the passing of the season accordingly! Here’s the news in Oregon beer for this hump day, Wednesday, June 20. As usual I’ll periodically update this post throughout the day with news as I find it, so check back occasionally.

McMenamins Cedar Hills (Beaverton) is holding it’s monthly limited-edition beer tasting today, with the Oak Hills brewer Dan Black, from 5 to 8pm. Details on what beer aren’t posted, but this takes place at the new Cedar Hills Pub, which had moved across the street into a larger space, so it’s worth a stop.

A new beer festival, the Summer Strawberry Beer Fest, was announced today, to take place Saturday, July 14, at Saraveza at the Bad Habit Room. “Saraveza and the Fruit Beer Festival will reteam for the inaugural Summer Strawberry Beer Fest on Saturday, July 14th at Saraveza and the Bad Habit Room. Featuring fifteen + beers made with Strawberries and the first single fruit beer fest featuring in-season fruit with fresh eye popping and mouth watering strawberries. The lineup includes some of the west coast’s finest and most talked about breweries and will include strawberry food specials like a beer float and much, much more.” It will run from noon to 10pm and cost $10 for the glass and 4 taster tickets.

Portland’s Widmer Brothers Brewing and F.H. Steinbart homebrew supply teamed up to celebrate Steinbart’s 100th(!) anniversary, with a party and special beer release at Widmer’s Pub today starting at 5pm: “Ever since FH Steinbart Co. opened in 1918 – this local and national staple has educated and inspired homebrewers and brewmasters here in Portland and across the world. In honor of such an occasion, we collaborated with FH Steinbart’s to brew thier 100th Anniversary ale, a Bavarian yeast bock – Steinbock to cheers to another 100 years! Join us and homebrewings best on Wednesday June 20th for a birthday celebration for FH Steinbarts like no other.

I rarely write about saké even though it’s in a similar category as beer, and I rarely drink it (which seems like something I should remedy). If I were in Portland on Wednesday, June 27, the perfect opportunity for both would present itself with Saké Fest PDX at the Oregon Convention Center (which happens to be the night before Homebrew Con starts — I wonder at the logistics of that.)

Saké Fest will offer over 180 different bottled sakés, which should be a terrific showcase for the drink for the novice and aficionado alike. An interesting angle to this fest is that the price is all inclusive—meaning, no tasting tickets and you are able to taste anything and as much as you like. (Though, you only have from 5:30 to 9pm.)

Here is the press release that went out:

Saké Fest PDX is the largest event of its kind  in the Northwest

Nowhere else can saké lovers try so many different bottles and unique food pairings in one evening

Portland is rumored to have the highest saké consumption of any city outside Japan so it makes sense that Saké Fest PDX returns each summer. This year’s event, happening the evening of Wednesday, June 27 will showcase over 180 different bottles of saké, paired with unique foods provided by 15 local chefs and food purveyors.

“Saké Fest PDX is an opportunity to taste saké from those who have been crafting saké for hundreds of years. Getting all of this expertise together for one event gives attendees a rare opportunity to learn from the most experienced and knowledgeable saké experts anywhere,” says Paul Englert of SakéOne. He adds, “the level of enthusiasm and sense of discovery at Saké Fest PDX is amazing. You can see the lightbulbs going off all night, as people learn just how unique and truly special saké is.”

SakéOne is the tasting glass sponsor each year and folks that purchase early admission tickets will receive a very special black glass that matches the g saké packaging, unlike any other offered in previous years. Regular admission attendees will receive a free glass with the Murai Family logo, another SakéOne brand.

Alongside tables of saké will be Japanese beer and cocktails made with local spirits. Jennifer Kadell of Bull Run Distillery explains why she loves Saké Fest PDX, “I am so appreciative of the fact this event could be held anywhere in the US but is here in our city, it really makes for an amazing night of experiencing some of the best saké producers and the most delicious food pairings.” This year, Bull Run Distillery plans to bring three new cocktails to the event. She continues, “I’m on a matcha kick right now and am infusing it into to our vodka then mixing it with a delicate high-noted saké– so perfect for the season. And the bolder and higher proof sakés make for a solid companion to our whiskeys.”

When: Wednesday, June 27, 2018, 5:30 – 9 PM

Where: Oregon Convention Center, 777 NE Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd., Portland, OR 97232

Tickets: All attendees receive a free souvenir tasting glass courtesy of SakéOne. Early Admission: $78 per person in advance online only (less than 25 early admission tickets remain). Regular Admission: $58 per person in advance online and a limited number of tickets will be available for $68 at the door. Adults 21+ only with proper ID. No ticketing fees, ever.

Bulk Ticket Purchases: Groups of 8 or more receive an instant $13 discount on each ticket when purchased at the same time.

Tickets are available online here. If you plan to go, make sure to get them ahead of time and save $10.

Here is the news in Oregon beer for this Tuesday, June 19, rounding up the various things going on around the state. As usual, I’ll be periodically updating this post throughout the day, so check back in from time to time.

The Bier Stein (Eugene) is hosting Bend’s GoodLife Brewing for the release party for G. Love’s Special Sauce IPA, GoodLife’s latest: “Sometimes the stars align and two forces are brought together to create special things. GoodLife Brewing is super stoked to announce a very cool project with national recording artist G. Love. Join us on Tuesday, June 19th to enjoy a limited edition seasonal release of G. Love’s Special Sauce IPA. The GoodLife Brewing team and G. Love will be partying at The Bier Stein for one night and one night only so come hang out with us and meet G! He’ll be playing an acoustic set for an hour and you definitely won’t want to miss it!”

Rogue Ales (Newport) introduced its Marionberry Sour which will be packaged and on shelves in July. Details: “The most Oregon of all Rogue Farms beers, Marionberry Sour, hits shelves for the first time this July. Marionberry Sour is a vibrant violet-hued sour ale made with prickless marionberries that bring a taste of the Willamette Valley with every sip. Marionberry Sour is made with a prickless variety grown on Rogue Farms that is easier to hand-pick for brewing. Marionberry Sour is available on draft now at all Rogue pubs and will be available in 6-pack 12 ounce bottles in July.”

Deschutes Brewery (Bend): Tuesdays are Community Pints days at the various Deschutes locations, where $1 from every pint sold are donated to a local non-profit organization. In Bend this month, the beneficiary is High Desert Food and Farm Alliance, while in Portland, it is Children First of Oregon. Good causes, be sure to stop by one of the locations and help out with a pint or three today.

Oregon City Brewing has its Charity Pint Night tonight starting at 5pm, supporting PDX Diaper Bank: “Drop by Oregon City Brewing Company between 5-11pm! $1 from every OCB pint, taster tray, soda, crowler, and growler purchased will be donated to PDX Diaper Bank. Olympia Provisions Public House Kitchen will be serving dogs, fries, and salads!”

Sedition Brewing (The Dalles) has its monthly Liquid Education beer school session this evening, starting at 5:30pm. “Want to learn more about the beverage we know and love, craft beer? This free event is a great way to stop in and sample a few of our offerings while learning about the beer, process, and the brewer behind the beer. We’ll see you there!”

Cascade Brewing (Portland): Tonight’s Tap It Tuesday at the Barrel House is featuring StrawBurial Lemon: “a collaboration blend made with our friend and Cascade alumnus, Mark Goodwin, now Head Blender at Burial Beer Company in Ashville, NC. The blend is comprised of sour blond, wheat and triple ales aged in oak wine barrels for up to 22 months with strawberries, lemon zest, pawpaw and vanilla bean. Pouring a rosy pink hue, this live barrels captures flavors of pink lemonade with a soft tropical note and a hint of vanilla (8.2%).”

With Homebrew Con in Portland just around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about conference survival tips. If you’ve never been — and somewhat surprisingly, this will be my own first time attending! — the AHA has helpfully posted a First-Time Attendee Guide that you should read.

General Conference Tips

Will glassware be provided? Yes. A commemorative glass provided for each attendee. Bring your glass with you everywhere you go – plastic cups ruin the flavor of your homebrew, and you never know when Drew Beechum is going to crack a bottle of Brut. And that guy standing next to you you’ve never seen before? Probably an awesome homebrewer with a bottle of tripel in his pocket looking for someone to share it with.

Will I need a car? Not during the conference. The majority of the people attending this conference say it is like a time warp – you go in Wednesday night and don’t come out till Sunday sometime. And besides, there isn’t likely much need for one, as the action is at the conference.

Hold onto your badge. Your conference badge must be worn around your neck at every official conference event. This includes seminars, Homebrew Expo, Social Club and the Award Ceremony. No badge, no entry, no exceptions.

General Drinking Tips

We know you’re an expert, but bear with us. There will be a lot of beer, do not try to drink it all at once. Seriously, pace yourself. During some of the seminars limited samples are offered, but when you add up what is available from mid-morning until late at night, you don’t want to over indulge at the risk of missing some cool events.

Stay hydrated, drink plenty of water. The conference is not a sprint, it’s not a marathon, it’s Iron Brewer.

Consider it essential reading if you’re a first timer (like me), but it’s a good refresher for veterans as well.

Happy Monday! I hope you had a nice holiday and recovered from the slew of beers weeks that just wrapped up, because there’s more news (there always is!) in Oregon beer to follow. Here it is for this week of June 18; as usual I’ll be periodically updating this post throughout the day so check back in from time to time.

Wolves & People Farmhouse Brewery (Newberg) is celebrating its second anniversary this Saturday with the bottle release of Felicitation. From the press release: “Two years in, Wolves & People Farmhouse Brewery will host their annual ‘Felicitation’ birthday bottle release featuring their own beers and other acclaimed ales from around the U.S. on Saturday, June, 23rd. The celebration will toast the brewery’s big second year, which included new highly-rated beers, a system expansion, national accolades, and sales into several U.S. states. This year’s version of ‘Felicitation’ is an 100% oak-fermented and barrel-aged, Brett-kissed saison with a blend of local jostaberries and raspberries (500ml). Available in limited quantities, advance tickets are available to the bottle release day and to reserve one bottle of Felicitation in advance.”

Crux Fermentation Project (Bend) celebrates its sixth anniversary this Saturday with its annual Cruxapalooza, despite the current patio construction going on: “We’re not going to let a little construction project prevent us from celebrating our anniversary and the community that supports us. So, we hope you’ll come down and join us for a day full of craft beer, food, and live music. Ural Thomas & the Pain is headlining our little hootenanny. Lance Canales & The Flood will be playing for us again and Bend’s own The Beautiful Train Wrecks and Soul’d Out will join Portland’s Mission Spotlight to round out the day’s line-up. Did we mention that there will be 30+ beers on tap plus some fun stuff for the kiddos?”

Worthy Brewing (Bend) posted today that its new Taps & Tacos location in downtown Bend will hold its grand opening on June 30. The location will feature “artfully crafted tacos” and eight taps of Worthy beer with a lineup of the brewery’s regulars mixed with specialties.

Side A Brewing (La Grande) has a beer back on tap at this eastern Oregon outpost: Guess what’s back on tap? Get the Oregon Fog at the pub or take it with you in a 32oz Side A Crowler!”
